Levis Creates WaterLess Jeans

We finished building it and hand painting the logo on it last night, it is an amazing 18′ tall gorgeous piece of work. I applaud the efforts of Levis, way to go.Now, we sleep. In an effort to promote water conservation, Levi’s has decided to go a different route with their denim finishing process....

The Perfect Tree – Inspired by Recycling

Every year I get so upset about the dead trees mid January lining the sidwalks in body bags. I decided to start a little side company, partly because I needed an inspiring side project and partly to do something helpful and beautiful. I came up with a gilt free (I am Jew-ish) alternative, and...

Vintage Paint by Numbers

The big project of the season for me has been the production and distribution of a life sized paint-by-numbers forest for each window in the Levi stores.

Just the Tip: More Pictures of Dalton Ghetti's Work

120 Blind Mice

Inspired by TeePees

The perfect design A while back I stayed in a teepee while on vacation and it was the best sleep I have ever had. I could have just been really tired which would not be crazy but I like to believe it was the sleeping vessel. I was thrilled when an upcoming project was...
